Making an urgent application
Applying for your e-visa Egypt well in time is highly recommended. The average delivery time is 10 days. In the application form, you can choose for your application to be processed urgently. The average delivery time for urgent applications is 5 days. Please note, however, that delivery times are not guaranteed. In case of a random application check, or unforeseen delays at the Egyptian immigration service, even urgent applications can suffer a delay. For example, the weeks leading up to Eid al-Fitr (the end of Ramadan) are always busy, often resulting in delays. To make sure you receive your e-visa in time, it is best to submit your application a few weeks before your departure. This will also save you the additional fee of € 17,50 that e-Visa.ie charges for an urgent application.Directly make an urgent application
Holiday to Egypt: the experience of a lifetime
Submit a group application
Are you going on holiday to Egypt with your family? Please note that each traveller needs their own passport and also their own e-visa. This also applies to young children. You can submit a separate visa application for each traveller, but it is easier to make use of a group application. That way, you can apply for several Egypt e-visas at the same time. You can do this with the same application form. At the top of the form, you fill in the general data, such as address data and data about the trip. At the bottom of the form, you fill in the details of each traveller. You can add up to ten people to your application with one form.Submit a group application for the Egypt e-visa
The costs of the Egypt e-visa
If you apply for an e-visa Egypt for a holiday to Egypt with this application form, the total costs are € 49,95 per person. This amount includes consular fees, service charges and tax. No additional transaction fees will be charged.
All applications for Egyptian e-visas are processed by the immigration service in Egypt, for which the Egyptian government charges a consular fee. Applications submitted at e-Visa.ie are also screened by visa specialists before the inspection in Egypt, for which a service fee is charged. All these costs are included in the total price of € 49,95 per traveller. Because your application is already checked at e-Visa.ie, you can be sure that your application will be processed in good order. The visa specialist will, for example, check if you have made any typing errors when copying your passport details in the application form. If an error is found, you will be contacted immediately so that the mistake can still be corrected. Your application can then be processed quickly and correctly, and you will receive a valid e-visa that allows you to easily pass all checks in Egypt.
There is also an Egypt e-visa which allows you to enter the country several times. If you choose that visa type, a surcharge will apply. You can also choose to have your application processed faster for an additional fee. Finally, you can opt for voluntary compensation of the CO₂ emissions of your flight. Read more about this on the page with all the information about the cost of the Egypt e-visa.
